Costa eyewear is made for your active lifestyle, bringing a healthy dose of fashion to the beach or trailhead. Polarized sunglasses, eyeglasses, and C-Mates bifocal readers by Costa will help you navigate in any direction your adventure leads.
The frames styles in the Costa eyewear collection are made for active lifestyles, but you’ll also find plenty of distinctive options for any scenario. Bio-based resin and recycled fishing nets replace traditional plastics in the Costa collection. Costa sunglasses feature co-injected frames, where nylon and Hydrolite™ are fused together. This combination promises a tighter grip to prevent slipping when exposed to sweat or water.
Costa combines blended bifocal lenses and tints tailored to adventure in C-Mates bifocal sun eyewear, available with lenses in magnifications from +1.50 to +2.50. Full-rim TR 90 nylon frames are plenty rugged, and some styles feature a patented venting system to reduce fogging for more comfort. This polarized reading eyewear also shields your eyes from 100 percent of the sun's UV rays, and blocks harsh glare for more comfort on the water or behind the wheel.
Costa uses sophisticated lens materials, impressive lens technologies, and tints tailored to your favorite activities in polarized sun eyewear perfectly suited to adventurous lifestyles. Costa 580G glass lenses provide incredible clarity, and minimal distortion. They also resist scratching, and they’re 22% lighter weight than average glass lenses for longer, more comfortable wear. Clear-as-glass plastic Costa 580P lenses are impact- and scratch-resistant. Costa sun eyewear styles are available with prescription lenses, so you can enjoy optical clarity on every sunny-day adventure. Costa uses Waypoint™ digital technology in prescription bifocal, single-vision, and progressive lenses. This technology provides better peripheral vision and increased clarity over other Rx sunglass lenses. C-Mates reading lenses feature gradual magnification, with no visible line.
Patented Costa lens technology provides crisp, clear vision on the water or off, and a range of lens colors tailors your vision even further. Anglers prefer lenses designed to wear on the water: blue and green lenses with mirror finish block harsh glare, intense light, and UV rays while fine-tuning contrast and color for improved clarity. Gray lenses are ideal for everyday wear, and versatile copper lenses are suitable for varying light conditions or cloudy days. Choose a mirrored lens coating for the most light-blocking power available.
As an authorized retailer, FramesDirect sells only guaranteed authentic Costa eyewear.
Costa—previously known as Costa del Mar—was founded in Florida, created by fishermen for fishermen in the late 1980s with the goal of designing sunglasses that could keep up with their angling lifestyle. The creators at Costa were frustrated because the sunglasses on the market at the time fit poorly and did not adequately filter glare from the water. They set out to create a new brand of glasses that would meet their specific needs and still look great. Since then, Costa has continued to create quality sunglasses and eyeglasses with innovative technologies. These performance sunglasses were "born on the water," and they’re made to last—each pair is a worthy investment.
